Flourishes Timeless Tuesday, CC207, FS107 Casing Jami


Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

I'm so excited to tell you that it is my turn to host the *Timeless Tuesday* Challenge!!!

I have challenged the *Friend of Flourishes* ladies to use *VELLUM* on their cards!!! I always loved the look, but must admit I rarely use it....and when I moved my stamp room I came across an unopened package...that's how I ended up with today's challenge!!!

I hope you like the task and play along??? For all the Samples and more info please visit the Flourishes Blog!!!


Can you tell I was in the *Plum Pudding* mood - LOL!!! I used the Flourishes *Thank You* Set. The flower was inked in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic Markers - G94, Vo9. Next I used the oval Nesties. All CS, DP, Vellum and Ribbon is from PTI. The border was punched out with the Eyelet Punch and accessorized with some small Gemstones (Hero Arts).

I was totally in the groove and made this cute little pillow box (SU Pillow Box Die) as well. I kept it really simple and embellished it only with Ribbon and matching Gemstones.

I already have a special person to mail this too....do you think she will like it???

For more inspiration and close up views visit my friends - Betty, Cindy and Kimberly.

I'm so looking forward to your creations!!! If you play along please use the FTTC4 keyword over on SCS!!!

Here is my card I made for the FS107- Jami Bova!!! I combined this with today's CC207 using - Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.

I had the pleasure of working with Jami last year on the ODBD Design Team and it was so nice to see that she was selected. Of course I had to play along.....and I have chosen this beautiful card of hers to case.

I've kept the layout very simple and didn't add any CS or DP. I chose a different Stamp - Flourishes Set *Sign Of Spring*. The of course the colors are different.

Have a wonderful day!!! ~TFL~

Very Very VERY pretty card, Silke! You know Plum Pudding is my very favorite color, and I love this Flourishes set (why oh why haven't I bought it yet, I don't know LOL!). I just made a card for next week's TSG post in shades of purple with gems on the ribbon too. Love that look. You know I love that little box too...another thing you you are making me WANT, hehe!

Wish I had some vellum so I could join you, but I'm totally out. I'm bummin!
